    sent my application off on the 7th of December and have basically got 4 offers in 2 weeks, and am only waiting on Cardiff now. To be honest, I have my grades and they're 2 grades lower than what they want, so I'm not expecting an offer.

    So I have to start thinking about which uni I want to go for. I havent visited any of them except for UWE, so need your opinions on what you would choose in my position and why, as none of them now have open days for 2011 cycle.

    They are all city based uni's which I like, not this campus "have to get a bus everywhere" rubbish apart from UWE, which I only applied to because I know the uni well as I studied there last year, and like Bristol.

    Help?

    Well I never had a preference as I didnt know that much about the uni's apart from that they were some of the best for my course for my grades. So it was pretty much the same.

    Have you visited them, or will you be?

    You've got plenty of time to decide, so maybe I'd start visiting them, checking them out? Is there no post offer open days for your courses? I know some unis do that

    Nottingham Trent do them, Northumbria and Manchester Met dont as far as I can tell, and UWE and Cardiff I already visited when I applied to uni 2 years ago...


    I was just interested for people who had visited the uni's to give me their opinions of them so I can perhaps make a more informed choice
